Beetroot Poha | Healthy Indian Breakfast Recipe

Beetroot Poha | Healthy Indian Breakfast Recipe

Beetroot poha is an easy and healthy indian breakfast recipe. This healthy and nutritious breakfast can be prepared within 15 minutes. It is made with beaten rice or flatten rice, hence it has good amount of iron and vitamin a and adding beetroot makes it even more nutritious.

The recipe also includes lemon juice which is source of vitamin c that ensures the better absorption of iron, so its a complete package of goodness.

The attractive red color of this poha comes naturally with beetroot, which is considered as a super food.

It is one of the recipes which looks so appealing inspite of being so simple. This beautiful red color catches everyone’s eyes. Adding nuts gives the dish a nice crunch.

I have already shared the recipe of harabhara poha (green masala poha) on my website. These are not only healthy but also attractive, my kids love it too with the lovely vibrant colors. You can even add some more color by adding some pomegranate seeds on top or some sweet corns which gives a nice contrast and interest.

It can be enjoyed as a healthy evening snack or a morning breakfast. It is nutritious and filling either way.
